‘Pity the poor ole ploughboy’ as Plough Monday fundraiser returns
The Balsham Ploughmen, a group of men who raise money for charity every year on Plough Monday, toured the village of Balsham on Monday (January 8).
Accompanied by a plough and the Cambridge Morris Men, the group were collecting funds for the Cambridge Cancer Help Centre, as well as for other local causes.
The donation envelopes that were distributed around the village were also raffle tickets, with a first prize of £200.
Plough Monday was revived in 1972, when Jim Daniels, Rodney Beeton, Terry Pask, Roy Ellam and a few others got talking and decided to use the event as a way to raise funds for the village.
